"Helping Hands for Cancer Patients" team reaches out to the community at their doorsteps...

"Helping Hands for Cancer Patients" team reaches out to the community at their doorsteps...

In the month of june 2010 the helping hands team embarked on a journey of imparting knowledge to the masses regarding cancer,its early diagnosis and treatment.

Our main focus was rural communities of kalar sayedan,nurpur shahan,bagah sheikhan and muslim colony.

The response of the communities was very much appreciable and mostly people were willing to accept the information that was provided to them regarding an illness which lurks in the darkest corners and persists to remain a mystery to the majority of the population.
We had the mission to spread awareness regarding early detection of cancer patients, as cancer is curable if detected at an early stage, that was the main focus of our group discussions with the local community.
Some of the rural communities were a few km's away from the modernized capital of our country, and are a existing reality within a reality.
The miseries of the underpreviliged are only visible to those who want see them.
There is a world within a decorated world which depicts the harsh realities of life.We just need to step in that world to absorb the important issues which need to be resolved.
"Help us fight cancer by spreading awareness and generating valuable funds for the needy patients"
